The global biodefense market witnessed a healthy growth during the period 2014-2019. Biodefense can be defined as the activity of preparing for, responding to and countering the acts of bioterrorism. A bioterrorism attack involves the deliberate release of bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that can cause chronic illnesses to humans, animals, agriculture and the environment. Biodefense involves various medical measures that are undertaken to protect individuals against biological threats, such as administering vaccinations and medicinal drugs, along with conducting research and various public health procedures. Biodefense products are commonly effective against anthrax, smallpox, botulism, radiation/nuclear disasters and other such catastrophes.
The growing threat of terrorism, coupled with continually rising tension between nations across the globe, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the increasing defense expenditure by the governments of several nations to improve both internal and external security is also providing a boost to the market growth. In line with this, there is widespread adoption of innovative technologies, such as gene chips, for the detection of pathogens in the fields of nanotechnology, forensics and biodefense-related drug development. Additionally, government agencies are recognizing various chemical, biological, nuclear and radiological threats and are developing medical countermeasures to minimize the adverse effects of these attacks. Apart from this, there is an increasing awareness regarding synthetic biology for improving agricultural yields, which is also creating a positive impact on the market growth. Apart from these, due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increasing demand for medical measures and threat detection procedures, which is also providing a boost to the market growth. Other factors, including extensive research and development (R&D) in the field of biotechnology, along with the availability of advanced biothreat detection devices, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global biodefense market to be highly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and to exhibit strong growth during the next few years.
